Home Inspection Field Training

Home Inspection Field Training

Washington State requires both classroom training and home inspection field training before a candidate can apply to sit for the home inspection licensing exam.

5b[1]Once classroom training is complete, students need 40 hours of instructional field training. We accept applicants for field training who have completed their classroom training with any licensed school for home inspectors in Washington. Field training brings students one step closer to their home inspection licensing goals.

From the State Website (WAC 308-408-101):

“Field training is in addition to the one hundred twenty hours of classroom instruction and shall be done on actual inspection sites. Field training must include forty hours of instruction with a minimum of five actual complete home inspections done to the standards of practice under the supervision of an experienced inspector. The applicant will be required to complete written reports for each inspection and the supervisor will review the reports and certify that they are in full compliance with the standards of practice. ”
